We gather several times throughout the year at events ranging from epic to intimate, events that bring community together around the arts while supporting the good work our students do every day.
PNCA Annual Gala
Pacific Northwest College of Art's largest annual fundraiser, the PNCA Gala raises critical resources to support scholarships, fuel new academic programs and ensure that our art and design students have the skills and experiences they need to successfully take their talents to the studio, the community and the corporation — or wherever their creativity leads them.
Each year, we host our Patron Party to thank our devoted patrons who support PNCA and the Center for Contemporary Art & Culture.
This year, PNCA's Annual Patron Party highlighted the three PNCA students who had been commissioned by Argyle Winery to create Art of Sparkling wine labels for the winery. Patrons gathered to celebrate their work and that of students whose work was installed throughout the building for First Thursday while enjoying sweet and savory treats from Devil’s Food Catering.
Parent & Family Weekend is a great time for parents and families to visit their students and learn more about the rich array of educational opportunities and resources available to PNCA students. This year's event coincided with the grand opening celebration of Make+Think+Code, our innovative new studio and research lab.
Parents also had the opportunity to sit in on a Friday afternoon class, attend a workshop in BridgeLab Career Center, meet faculty, get an inside view of the senior thesis process, and enjoy a pancake breakfast at Flapjack Saturday hosted by President Don Tuski.
